1967. Pressured by the generation gap, lovers Rosalind and Orlando escape the city and journey to the Forest of Arden where they become entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust and mistaken identity.

NB This is an immersive promenade production which will be performed at various locations around the theatre building. You will spend the first 40 minutes standing and walking. Around 10 minutes of the performance takes place outside – under cover, so you won’t get wet in case of rain – but we advise you to wear a coat. The main auditorium is fully seated and some of the seating is on sofas, stools and benches. The venue and performance is fully accessible for wheelchair users or those with mobility issues. The difference locations are close to each other and you will not walk far! The action takes place on one level, no stairs involved. If you have a mobility issue, please contact us so we can ensure your visit is comfortable.
